Ouch. I've done that a few times, I just come back to the stop after an hour, and normally it's the same bus that comes back. :D No one steals in Australia. :3
Unfortunately, everyone steals on Marta. OP: Assuming you were in a-town, If you have the serial number for the laptop, call the APD pawn desk and give them the numbers and the pawn shops will get it back to you if someone tries to sell it. Apparently, they've got that system working surprisingly well.
Wow, that sucks! I guess no one noticed or didn't want to care about it. Just hope that there's a label somewhere on it with your info, I always do that, so maybe they'll feel sorry you got pushed off like that and bother to return it... Once my wallet got left on the bus, I was rushing out and it fell off and well I never got it back... and it happened to be a day when I actually had a decent amount of money in it... Sucks... FYL...
How do you just tend to a broken ankle by yourself without a splint readily available or something? Fairly confident there's not that much you could do sitting there on the sidewalk.
Not the calculator!!!! Aiiiiiieeeeeeee! Please tell me you had your slide rule on you. I don't know if I could take it if that also disappeared on the Bus from Hell.
I think you scrambled your noodle a bit too, OP, otherwise you might have made a post that used a more sensible vocabulary. Also, who's to say that he didn't do it on purpose just so that he could steal your stuff? I wouldn't be surprised. That kind of stuff happens. The only good news is that unless the thief is smart enough to remove all identifying marks from the laptop or sell it piece by piece, it should be recoverable (the title itself isn't transferable without your consent, so any supposed "purchaser" forfeits their rights to the lappy). It's even more likely if any of the components were custom.
OP should know that it's impossible to "break" your ankle, seeing as how the ankle is a joint between the bones of the lower leg and foot. Most likely, he sprained his tendons, strained one of the muscles in that group, or if he was extremely unlucky, both. Note that none of those possibilities are the same as breaking a bone.
ok mister technical if someone breaks the ball off the femur that connects it to the pelvis is that not called a broken hip? and yet the hip is a joint and under your definition can not be broken. an ankle can be broken in many ways. any one of the bones that make up the join may break under many different circumstances and if the join in question is the ankle then yes it is called a broken ankle. you learn this in 3rd grade health class and every year after that here in the USA. on top of that basic knowledge i am also an EMT and X-ray tech. so please use your brain for something other than trying to sound like you know what your talking about.
Really #26? I guess my doctor and x-rays were totally wrong since it showed my ankle was fractured after falling off my horse at age 10. Guess my husband didn't really break his ankle a few days ago after falling off the front steps because they were iced over. More wrong x-rays, right dumbass? You need to go back to Elementary school.
